Year One: Chapter 1
Year One: Chapter 1: Chronicles of The One | Nora Roberts
A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling authoran epic of hope and horror, chaos and magic, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives... It began on New Years Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsedand more than half of the worlds population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the riveror in the ones you know and love the most. As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive. In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain. The end has come. The beginning comes next.

4⭐️

Following the story of a number of characters, we see what happens to the world when a virus starts killing people within 24-48 hours and spread no matter what efforts are put in place. At the same time, magic is fully reintroduced into the world with elves, fairies, witches, wizards and more coming into their own. Now in a world where billions have died, we see what happens when good and evil for both sides reshapes what was once the world.

Perfect for fans of dystopian fantasy! More plot-driven but with a fair amount of character development as well, I really enjoyed this one! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I read this one a while back and for some reason forgot to review it. Surprising since I quite liked it. Nora Roberts dives into post apocalyptic/sci-fi fiction and does a great job of it. If you like Nora Roberts and/or are a fan of this type of fiction, this should be a book you will enjoy.

Take my last two reads, add them together, and you‘ve created this book. It‘s a post-pandemic adventure that has a magical element. Everyone‘s escaping the cities. Some people discover they have extra abilities—all those magical creatures are real now. If you‘ve survived The Doom. Sadly, prejudice and evil also survive. So good vs. evil, well told. Ordered book 2!

I actually really enjoyed this book! I have two others on my TBR (that are due back to the library soon) so I'll be reading those before diving into the next books in the series. But this book was delightful. Definitely a page turner. I'm glad I read it.

Dragonfairykats I was wondering how it was, since I've been waffling over reading it 3mo
ThalassaLuna @Dragonfairykats it's very entertaining if you enjoy magick, apocalypse stories and a little romance. 3mo

This is my kind of book! I know it's not going to be for everyone, but I loved it. It has been soo long since I've read anything by Nora Roberts! I recognized her style of writing like she was an old friend. Even though this is much different than what she usually writes, you still see her very clearly.
Yes, there is magic. Yes, the survivors have to choose between good and evil. There is also love, hope, and a great start to a series! 😍

#JulyReads #JulyStats #JulyWrapUp

I read 16 books this month.
124 books for the year (far far behind some of my fast reading friends🤷‍♀️).
The tagged book is the book I'm currently reading - and definitely enjoying!
My two 5 star ratings for this month were both for younger readers- 'The Secret Garden' and 'Hatchet'- both of which I will forever highly recommend to anyone. I also enjoyed 'Daisy Jones & The Six' and 'Along Came A Spider'.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Some diverse reading there, I love it! Great month. I'm only at 51 books for the year, so you're doing amazing in my eyes. Lol. 💕📚💕 3mo
JenFowler @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Thanks! 😅 I do try to read a variety of books each month. Reading a classic here and a YA there makes life interesting! 3mo

I'm not sure how to feel about the fact that all my books on hold (paper and digital) came in at once! I've been to the library every day this week, which is great; but I cant help feeling a bit overwhelmed by the task before me.
I did get to pick up my tote today for completing 3 books on the reading challenge. Last year I completed 17, I hope I can complete more this time!

This was my first ever Nora Roberts book, and I was not disappointed! At this point I have pretty much tired of traditional dystopian stories, but the biological/infectious basis of this story drew me in and I enjoyed it so much as someone who loves medicine and science. I enjoyed the perspectives given from different characters. Descriptions were vivid and I had great pictures of what was happening in my mind! I am looking forward to the sequel!

Have you ever gotten so used to an author's writing, it's easy to anticipate what's coming next? Nora Roberts has always been my go to romance/easy reading author. Every trilogy starts out with three men and three women. We all know how it ends. NOT THIS ONE! I am so pleasantly surprised. I couldn't put this book down. It has everything; Witches, fairies, seers, prophets, oh and the apocalypse!? I am so excited to read book 2 📚📚
Happy Reading!

Bookworm_45 That book sounds amazing! 7mo
MrsBibliophile I loved it! I can't WAIT to read the second and the third. If you're into to fantasy/sci-fi check out The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco. I couldn't put them down. 7mo

This was between a pick and a so-so for me, and I'm still sorting out how I feel about it.

Imagine that there's a pandemic of such epic proportions that more than half the world population dies, and rapidly. At the same time, some people experience a strengthening of magic powers. What would the world look like? And what would happen if that first generation were to give birth to a child of magical prophecy?

Suet624 Is this the Nora Roberts who writes romance novels? 7mo
ScientistSam @Suet624 it is. It's a very different genre from most of her books, though she does have a few romances with magic in them. This is definitely not a romance! 7mo
Slajaunie I‘m going to have to read this one. As a teenager and young adult I loved romance and this was one of my favorite authors. I have not read one of her books in years. This one sounds right up my ally though. 7mo
ScientistSam @Slajaunie I'd love to know what you think! It's definitely not her typical genre😀 7mo

I cannot describe how much I disliked this book, which is dissapointing as I have only read two of her trilogies (the Circle trilogy & the Gallaghers trilogy) & I really enjoyed them.
The childish devision between 'good' & 'evil' characters. Fairies already conveniently named stuff like 'Rainbow' & the baddies cackling like a house fell on their sister. The names for everything are terrible & I found it strange that only straight people survived.

I‘ve read Nora Roberts before but this was very different from what I‘m accustomed to. The first book in a dystopian trilogy that combines dark and gritty with elements of romance and fantasy; a somewhat odd combination that surprisingly worked well. I was pleasantly surprised... another series I‘ve managed to be dragged into

I don‘t know how I missed this book because I only found it when I read a blurb about the second book in the series. I thought it was good though it was a bit jarring with the time jumps. The characters and descriptions were very good and I am looking forward to reading book 2.

First Library book finished that I checked out from the branch I work at now! Today was my first day of training. I‘m a materials handling technician so I get to spend a lot of time with these beautiful books.
I really got into this story. dystopian/ fantasy / romance make for a great book. I‘m not the biggest fan of her writing style but the story made up for it all.

OMG .. this book! I went into it looking for a romance and found a dystopian fantasy.

Nora Roberts challenged herself and succeeded with this amazing story; of loss/grief/tragedy/rebirth/love.

Lana overcomes so much in this amazing book, but keeps on going. I can't wait to grab book 2!!

Look at these endpapers! 🤗 🤗 🤗

This is Stephen King‘s The Stand meets ... well Nora Roberts. Nonetheless, while those are two vastly different levels of fantasticry, I enjoyed this lighter mashmallow fluffy way (and way more approachable 400 page) take on Stu Redman (let‘s call her Lana) meets The Walking Dead (let‘s call them Warrior Purity).

This marks book 4 of my #24B42019 challenge!
